Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone is reportedly eyeing out-of-favour Liverpool star Naby Keita, according to (via CaughtOffside). The Argentine is set to begin a midfield clearout in the upcoming transfer window, with the Guinean thought to be an ideal target.

Having arrived in 2018, the No.8 has suffered from an ongoing battle with injury. Unfortunately, he has to be considered one of the most frustrating signings of the Klopp era.

Given Liverpool saw it worthwhile to further strengthen their central midfield options last window with the signing of Thiago Alcantara, it is clear they don’t see Keita as a long-term solution. Therefore, Madrid could be a good destination for him.
